           Summary: refid is mentioned in examples but is not formally
                    documented
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.2
          Platform: Sun
               URL: http://ant.apache.org/manual/using.html#references
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: douglas.kramer@sun.com


The http://ant.apache.org/manual/using.html#references section describes id:

 "The id attribute of the buildfile's elements can be used to refer to them."

It should also describe refid.

Because this description is missing, a search only finds "refid" in examples,
so its meaning can only be inferred.

What refid means has been a source of confusion, and it's frustrating 
not to be able to easily find a description of it.
(I was mistakenly assigning a property to it.)

Also, it would help if "id" and "refid" were more set off more prominently
(in a table or heading or bold), but it appears your format perhaps doesn't
allow for that?
